    I'm not a very active Flippa member to be honest. But I go there time to time and check if there is anything good.
    So, in last 4 years, I have been bidding on some sites, most of the time without any success.
    Those sites however, stay in my bid history page where I go back to see what those sites have been became.
    To my surprise, lots of them disappeared, even if "they were making tons of money".
    Here are some example:
    www.allplayit.com: 20K uniques/month with $150/month
    www.totaldetails.info : 4K uniques/month with $4,000/month of revenue!
    www.zoomza.com 75K per month and $225/month revenue
    and so on.
    I guess there are a lot of fake GA and screenshot over there...

    All these auctions are 3 years old. If you don't invest time and work in sites, even the best sites will die. So it's not necessarily true that those stats were fake.

    You wouldn't believe the amount of sites that I sell and people don't even bother to upload. People are very lazy and most of them don't even know it. :S

    Most of flippa's auctions are hyped up and faked.
    I don't believe someone would sell a business that brings good stable income for 3-4 months of profit.

    Do a team viewer when buying any site as to income, traffic etc.

    Due diligence can save you a lot of money as well as make you a lot.
